Product Description

French philosopher Maurice Blondel (1861-1949) had a tremendous impact on both philosophy and religion in the twentieth century. He was at once a postmodern critical philosopher and a devout traditional Catholic who strove to keep these two sides of his life in unison, neither separating nor confusing them.

In this first-ever critical examination of Blondel's entire life and work entitled Maurice Blondel: A Philosophical Life, Oliva Blanchette tells of Blondel's stormy confrontations with an academy dismissive of religion and a religion uncomfortable with rational philosophy. The book recounts both Blondel's biographical history and his systematic philosophy in meticulous detail.

Endorsements

Emmanuel Tourpe
—Institute D'Etudes Theologiques

"Here, at last, is the standard reference book on Maurice Blondel's philosophy that we have been desperately waiting for. Absolutely clear and accessible even to nonconnoisseurs, this book succeeds in showing how much Blondel's thought is the conceptual reflection of his deep spiritual experience. Written by a real metaphysician, this masterpiece embraces for the first time the wholeness of Blondel's thorough intentions, from the very first notes to the final texts. Maurice Blondel: A Philosophical Life is, indeed, an event. There will be henceforth a 'before' and an 'after' Oliva Blanchette's book, which will delight not only Blondelian researchers but also the entire philosophical community."
